The Essential Theatre presents The Addiction/Recovery Project, a series of community conversations, leading up to the world premiere of a play, People for Whom the World Spins and Turns, by James J. Hsiao, MD, scheduled to run at the Anacostia Playhouse June 29-July 15.
The project kicks off on March 13 with a panel discussion entitled Women, Addiction, and the People Who Love Them at the Anacostia Arts Center, as a part of Women’s History Month. The panel will feature the Humanities Coordinator for this project, Stanice Anderson, an author, motivational speaker, heroin overdose survivor, and performance artist along with other panelists to be announced soon. The discussion will focus on choices women who struggle with addiction make and the ins and outs of finding the right resources for substance abuse disorder. Starting at 6:30 pm at the Anacostia Arts Center (1231 Good Hope Rd SE, Washington, DC 20020), the discussion is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and will be on a first-come basis.
